Lorenzo Marasso is an impassioned and sympathetic concert pianist, chamber musician, conductor, and recording artist. Dubbed the “king of repertoire” his creative programming spans centuries and continents, often revealing lesser known masterpieces. Lorenzo’s performances have been broadcast in numerous media outlets, including Radio Vaticana in Italy and Seattle’s 98.1 Classical King FM Northwest Focus LIVE, a radio show showcasing the Pacific Northwest’s diverse music scene. Equally inspired by contemporary music, performances have included the world premiere of, among others, “Partizan”, a staged melologue for pianist and actor, that Lorenzo commissioned LA-based composer Anne LeBaron, and the European premiere of Keith Jarrett’s Sonata for Violin and Piano. Further, in July 2020 he completed the Invention Project, a commission of 15 new pieces for piano inspired by J.S. Bach’s Inventions and Sinfonias. In 2017 Lorenzo founded Bauhaus Records, a recording label devoted to restoring a more healthy and direct relationship between musicians and the recorded product. The current catalogue includes the complete Inventions and Sinfonias by J.S. Bach, performed by Lorenzo, and Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross. In 2019 Lorenzo released his fourth album, Abenteuer, which captures enchanting performances of works by JS Bach and his son CPE Bach, Alban Berg, Joseph Haydn and Franz Liszt. Born in Torino, Italy, Lorenzo earned degrees in music performance from the Conservatorio di Milano in Italy and the Royal Academy of Music in the UK.
Lorenzo lives in Seattle, WA, where he performs regularly and enjoys collaborations with the Music Faculty at the University of Washington and Seattle University.
